I’m a stealth junkie, and the source of that addiction comes from Thief. From The Dark Project through Deadly Shadows, it’s been a long 10 year stretch since we put on the soft leather boots of Garrett – master thief. Well, SquareEnix is finally bringing our favorite cutpurse back to the screen courtesy of the new Thief title slated for 2014. Today we have a trailer entitled “Uprising” from gamescom, as well as a few screens. Let’s see what the group that brought us Deus Ex: Human Revolution has in store for us:
“This city will not die with the old and the poor holding it back.
The time has come for a new future”
“No more will our homes be taken and our families starved.
This City belongs to the people. We must seize it back.”
Garrett the Master Thief is entangled in the growing layers of conflict between Baron Northcrest and the oppressed masses led by Orion, the voice of the people. In a City on the brink of revolution, Garrett’s skills are all he can trust as he walks the fine line between politics and the people.
Coming to shelves on February 25th, 2014 in North America and February 28th, 2014 in Europe and PAL territories, the game is shipping for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. If you missed my hands-on time with the game, you might want to check it out.
